If you like the work of Gaudi and other tile artists, you will appreciate the Chapel of Jimmy Ray. It is necessary to make a reservation, and probably have your cab wait for you - as it is about 25 minutes from centro San Miguel. We had a blast and will go again if we can make arrangements.

This is an amazing experience, hard to d scribe but fun. ANado's use of found objects and recycled materials is creative and artistic. Ask about the dry toilet, ask to see his rescued donkeys. Take your camera!

Completely unique tour not to be missed. An outsider art compound that delights at every turn. The artist, Anado, gives an engaging and thoughtful tour of the visual poetry that encompasses his world. Pleasantly interacting with everyone on the tour, your made to feel more like a close friend than a spectator. But make reservations and don't be late.

You would have to search wide and far to find a gem of a creation like this. Needs to be named an Art Historical site. Owners Anado&Richard have created an art canvas covering the entire property-a must visit in my opinion while in San Miguel. Viva Arte.

The art here is bright, colorful, and creative, making visitors feel uplifted and happy. We loved the bottle wall, the small gallery (items for sale here), and the decorated chemical toilet. This place may be off the beaten track and a bit hard to find, but worth searching out.

We host the weekly Home & Garden Tour here about 3 times per year. This home may be one of the most unique places on the planet. Adono and Richard have put their life's work into the colors, textures and flavors of the property.
